Types of Online Roulette Bets

Types Online Roulette Bets

Roulette has been around since the 17th century, and in the late ’90s moved to an online format, and the rest, you could say, is history. Anyone can now play their favourite games in the convenience of their own homes thanks to the recent growth of online casinos. Every month, new casino systems are released, giving roulette enthusiasts a plethora of options. Now, regardless of where you live, you can play European, American, and all other variations of roulette. However, before you dive into roulette, there’s one thing you need to know; the different types of online roulette bets, what they mean, and how they work.

The Basics of Online Roulette Betting

Almost all wagers at the roulette table have the same house edge, which in American roulette is 5.26% and a European roulette table is about 2.70%. Unless otherwise stated, it can be presumed that all of the wagers below contain those house edges.

Inside bets and outer bets are the two main categories into which the majority of roulette wagers fall. You must satisfy the table minimum on each outside bet you place when placing these wagers during a game, and the sum of all your inside bets must likewise meet the minimum.

As long as your wagers satisfy the minimal wagering requirements, you are permitted to place inside wagers, outside wagers, or wagers that combine both types.

Straight Bets

Place your chips on top of any single number to place a single-number bet (also known as a straight-up bet or a classic bet). This wager pays 35-1 if the specified number is hit on the following spin.

Split Bets

Placing chips on the line between any two adjacent numbers on the roulette board will place a bet on those two numbers. This wager pays 17-1 if any number is the victor on the subsequent spin.

Street Bets

By setting your chips on the edge of any row of three numbers on the roulette table, you can make this bet. The wager pays 11-1 if any one of those three numbers triumphs.

Corner Bets

This wager, which is also known as a square bet, is made on a square of four numbers on the roulette table by setting chips on the spot that those four numbers share. This wager pays 8-1 if any of the four numbers is successful.

Six Line Bets

This wager is placed on a total of six numbers across two adjacent lines with three numbers each. The intersection of the two lines down the side of the board is where you place your chips for this wager. The wager pays 5-1 if any one of the six numbers triumphs.

Top Line Bets

Players in American roulette are the only ones who can place this bet. These five numbers are available for this wager: 0-00-1-2-3. The single bet with a bigger-than-average house edge (7.9%) is this one, which pays 6-1 but should definitely be avoided while the game is being played.

Column Bets

One of the three columns of 12 numbers on the roulette wheel is covered by this wager. The wager pays 2-1 if any number in that column triumphs.

Dozens Bets

One of the three columns of 12 numbers on the roulette wheel is covered by this wager. The wager pays 2-1 if any number in that column triumphs.

Odd/Even Bets

Both odd and even numbers are covered by these two wagers. This wager will pay out at even money if any number of that sort triumphs.

Red/Black Bets

These two wagers cover all of the numbers on the roulette wheel that are located in the corresponding coloured pockets. The wager gives even money if any number of that hue triumphs.

Call Bets

Roulette games played in the Europe and French variants only accept called bets. This form of bet comprises placing a wager on a set of numbers based on their placement on the roulette wheel (as opposed to just the table). Fixed and variable bets are divided into two types. Variable bets can fluctuate based on a player's preferences whereas fixed bets remain the same regardless. Look at a couple of the examples below.

Fixed-call bet

  • Neighbours of Zero: A wager on all of the wheel's numbers between 22 and 25.

  • Thirds of the Wheel: This wager covers the entire third of the number range, from 33 to 27.

  • Zero Game: The numbers between 12 and 15 that are seven numbers away from zero are called the "Zero Game." 

  • The Orphans: This is a wager that covers a total of eight numbers: 17, 34, 6, 1, 20, 14, 31, and 0

Variable Called Bet

  • The Neighbors: A wager on one number together with the two numbers on either side of it, for a total of five numbers.

  • Final Straight: A wager on distinct numbers with the same final digit, such as 0, 10, 20, and 30.

  • Final Split: A wager on two numbers that cover every number. You would wager on 0, 1, 10, 11, 20, 21, 30, and 31 if you choose 0 and 1.

Final Bets

This wager is placed on a roulette wheel with only one zero. You're wagering on the "last" digit.

For instance, if you place a "final 4" bet, you are placing a wager on all numbers ending in 4, which include 4, 14, 24, and 34. You can wager on all numbers that conclude in 7, including 7, 17, and 27, if you place a final 7 wager.

Here are the available final bet options:

  • Final 0:0, 10, 20, 30

  • Final 1:1, 11, 21, 31

  • Final 2:2, 12, 22, 32

  • Final 3:3, 13, 23, 33

  • Final 4:4, 14, 24, 34

  • Final 5:5, 15, 25, 35

  • Final 6:6, 16, 26, 36

  • Final 7:7, 17, 27

  • Final 8:8, 18, 28

  • Final 9:9, 19, 29

The amount of units is determined by the ultimate wager you place. Even split-final bets are offered in several casinos. You might wager on 5/8. On the splits 5/8, 15/18, 25/28, and 35, this would appear as one piece each split. Finaal bet, final 4, final 7, or split-final 5/8 are some of the most popular ways to state final bet.

Maximum Bets

This wager combines all inside wagers and places them on a certain number. In high-roller casinos, this wager is most prevalent.

The purpose of this wager is to use a progressive betting strategy to get access to the table's maximum betting limit.

This particular roulette wager is distinctive in that nothing is ever laid out on the table. Not in the upscale casinos in Europe. The gaming personnel and patrons are both aware of the bets and payments. So all the dealers have to do is acknowledge and repeat the bet (for both the customer and the table inspector/floor person) and then, if/when the players win, declare the payoff in the same way.

In some casinos, players are permitted to place full entire wagers, but only up to the straight-up maximum bet for the table.
